I just tapped your Pliny the Elder clone this weekend and it is delicious! It's surprisingly smooth for 368 theoretical IBUs and the punch-you-in-your-face hop flavor and aroma are awesome. Based on the ~8% ABV I thought it might take a while to get through this keg, but after enjoying 4 or 5 pints with my brother-in-law this weekend I think it'll go much quicker than I originally expected!

finished my last 16 oz bottle yesterday. Still "fresh" and full of flavor. Good head retention until the end. Will brew again, if I get the chance. Most AHS recipes are good enough to brew again, but there is only so much I can do. Cheers.

I brewed and bottled this about 3 months ago for a friend's birthday. It is the best beer I have ever brewed. Perfect head, great aroma, amazing flavor. My share of the batch is about gone so I purchased another kit to keg! Can't wait! If you enjoy a hoppy but not over powering beer this is for you!

Brewed as a mini-mash. Primary 9 days and 41 days in secondary with the dry hopping. After 4 weeks in the bottle, this beer is really coming into its own. Great nose and a big but mellow hoppy flavor. Definitely a keeper. I'll rebrew this again and again.

I brewed the extract version. I kegged it on Friday night. We had friends over on Sunday and everyone loved it. It isnt fully carbonated yet, but i was letting people have small tastes. I can't wait for it to be fully carbed and ready to go. The extract kit is amazingly close to the real deal. Highly recommend this beer!!

Brewed the AG version. After 2.5 weeks bottle conditioning, it is well carbinated and very aromatic. I could smell and taste orange and grapefruit in the easy to drink brew. Kept its head all the way through. Can't wait to see how this will taste after the full 6 weeks recommended conditioning, if it lasts that long.

I brewed the extract version and after 2 weeks in the bottle it tastes excellent. It tastes very similar to the real deal and in my opinion has an even nicer aroma. If you are like me and don't have access to Pliny the Elder I'd highly recommend picking up this kit.

I recently brewed this beer using the partial mash kit and it smelled fantastic from the beginning. Occasional tastings here and there were so flavorful. Do your self a HUGE favor and buy about a dozen of the small muslin bags to make hop balls. At 13 oz of hops for the boil, you will have a heck of a time trying to filter them all out and still have useable amounts of wort plus 3 to 4 oz of dry hops in the secondary translates to about FOUR INCHES of hops floating on top and about 10 days of waiting for this to clarify only to wind up with a good amount of hop sludge while bottling. All that aside, this is one of the better beers I have had!

I first brewed this recipe in 2010 and it was a winner (see comments under Michael S.). I recently repurchased the kit and all seemed to go very well. Although a very good IPA in its own right, the end product was not as I'd hoped or remembered, and certainly NOT Pliny-like. I dug through my old notes and found the original recipe from AHB. Wow! Lots of changes have been made. I'll be sure to brew to the OLD recipe next time.

Brewed up the All Grain version of this kit and I just sampled the bottle at 2 weeks after bottling and it's coming along quite nicely! The hop aroma is outstanding. I mixed all the dry hops together and divided them up in three equal parts and added one portion per week and bottled one week after the 3rd dry hop addition. I recommend purchasing a 5 gal paint strainer bag from one of the big box stores or a very large grain bag for your hop additions. Attach it to your boil kettle with some binder clips and toss your hops in that vs tossing in multiple small hop bags. I also recommend using a strainer between the bottling bucket/keg and the secondary when siphoning. This definitely hits the spot when you're in an IPA mood.
